Sexiest Man Alive cover and article
  • With many thanks to Stacie, here are the thumbnail scans of the cover and article of Matt's Sexiest Man Alive issue at People magazine. (But please also buy the issue and support Matt, as each SMA issue is judged against the sales of previous years.)

  • Update: There's an article at Variety on 'solid genre performances the Academy is likely to overlook', including Matt for The Bourne Ultimatum:


    MATT DAMON as Jason Bourne in "The Bourne Ultimatum"

    This kind of acting isn't easy. Every day Damon had to show up on set and look variously alarmed, determined, alert and ferocious while traversing three continents and beating the crap out of countless bad guys -- and he could never be sure whether the right amount of variety and interest would be present when it was all put together. Movie stars know how to do that. "Good Will Hunting" established his name, and "The Talented Mr. Ripley" proved he could act. But the three Bournes made him an authentic movie star, and just as the Academy waited until Film No. 3 to shower "The Lord of the Rings" with kudos, so Damon deserves a nod for kick-ass work in the third installment of a kick-ass series.

    Thanks for posting the scans and thanks Stacie for doing it. I shall try and buy a copy - but not easy in London as only a few shops have it. Is the issue still current this week - I'm at an airport on Friday and they always have People magazine there. Jan

    I think it's a double issue (over the US Thanksgiving break) and should be on stands for two weeks.

    Although I haven't bought a copy of People for several years, I made a point of picking the magazine up earlier this week. As you said, I want to support Matt.

    Thanks Mary. I know we (mostly) agree that it's a meaningless title, but sales of the issue will be remembered. Even a few years after Ben won the SMA title it was still mentioned how Ben's issue was a best seller (maybe of the issues to the date of his cover).

    I just want it to do well (particularly with such an awful photo as the cover).

    I never buy people but, I did buy this one.
    I will always support Matt. I think he is a fabulous actor.

    A friend of my mom lives in the USA and he bought a copy for me, since we can't seem to find this one in the Netherlands. I will always support Matt, because I truly think people can learn from him, being the kind person that he is.
    I've been a fan of him since I was 9 years old, that's so surreal.

    Sorry felicity, I forgot to add my name. Thanks for everything you do, and I admire the fact that you try not to post things about his private life. All the best, Pauline.

    Adding my thanks for the scan! I'll pick up a copy of People next week and urge all to do similar.

    I wish I could buy this but unfortunately they don't bring this mag in my country. So thanks a lot for putting up the scans for all of those who can't buy the mag.

    Whew! Matt needs to get back to work and back in shape. They'll fire him from SMA! Is his character in Imperial Life overweight?

    keeping it real

    Sorry Ladies, but I bought the mag because, damn it, the dude IS hott. That's right, with two T's.

    Oh, and he's a great actor too which just so happens to increase his hotness quotient.

    The really should have used the large inner image (the on with smoldering blue eyes) as the cover image. He looked amazing...

    Yum is more like it actually. I luv me some Matty Damon. The smile, the eyes, and the voice are driving me batty. I thought he was cute since "Rounders", but when I saw him in"The Departed", I really noticed how his boyish charm had manifested into full fledged sexiness. He's no longer just a cute guy, but a beautiful, charming man. Maturity has done wonderful things for him.

    Oh, and one more thing. They've got to get him pumped up and at least half naked in the next film. I think I'll pass out.

    I'm 30 with a school girl crush! Damn you Matty. Damn your gorgeousness.
